Jack Williams & the Nearly New Year's crew
Saturday, Dec. 28 at the UU Coffeehouse   
Jack Williams with Danny Harlow, Cary Taylor, Susan Taylor, and special guests Robert Bowlin, Steve Klinck and Wayne Mason
The show begins at 7:30 p.m., doors open at 7 p.m. This special show will resemble some of the New Year’s Eve shows we’ve held over 

the years. There will be two sets, the first will be a concert of original music, then the second set will open up to songs from 

Jack’s years of performing, including both originals and covers. During the second set there will also be a dance floor for those who just can’t sit still anymore!
All tickets for this special show are $20. Make your reservation early!
The UU Coffeehouse listening room is located at 2701 Heyward Street, the corner of Heyward and Woodrow Streets, in Shandon.

A Note
from Jack Williams

"Good news for our friends who'll be with us for our annual years-end, "almost-New-Year's-Eve" concert on December 28th, at the UU Coffeehouse in Columbia, S.C.  Joining us on the stage this year will be our good friends:

Steve Klinck
Steve Klinck
- percussionist and vocalist with my band from the 80's - FOOLS IN LOVE, and former member of Columbia's own Corbett-Urquia Band and Nappy Patch!

Wayne Manning
Wayne Manning
 -bass vocalist and bass-player with our band from the 1960s, The Statesmen,
Wayne Manning, The Statesmen, ca 1960
and 7 years a sideman and songwriter, touring with the late Kitty Wells.

Kitty Wells, Sincerely, 1972

As has been our custom, we'll play a long set of mostly original songs (mine and Susan Taylor's) followed by a moving back of chairs and tables to make room for *gulp* dancing to a last set of old favorite R&B and rock tunes - covers and more originals. 

It'll be especially exciting having Wayne singing with us again AND having Steve playing drums with us for the first time at this annual concert. This is gonna be fun!"

The Coffeehouse is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia. We offer a family friendly, smoke-free listening environment for the appreciation of original singer/songwriter music. The majority of the musicians who play at the UU tour nationally and internationally.

The UU Coffeehouse, which opened its 20th season in September 2013, presents a range of acoustic music with connections to folk, blues, Celtic, bluegrass, jazz, and international music. Featuring musicians who tour nationally and internationally, the UU is a favorite performing and listening room for musicians who bring unique original music to the Columbia area.

    SINGER-SONGWRITER-STORYTELLING-BLUESMAN..... Roy Book Binder has been rambling around the world for the past 45 years!   He gave up his Greenwich Village "pad” in the early 1970's and lived in his "Tour Bus" for the next 15 years criss crossing the US and appearing at festivals throughout Canada & Europe.


    Book Binder, traveled with the legendary Rev. Gary Davis in the late 60's..... The Book, recorded his first solo acoustic Blues album in the 70's, which was the first to receive  5 stars in DOWNBEAT magazine!  In the late 80's 'The Book' was part of Bonnie Raitt's East Coast Tour, which included an appearance on The Grand Old Opry which led to almost 30 appearances on NASHVILLE NOW's, Ralph Emory Show!   In the 90's he often appeared with JORMA KAUKONEN (who recorded 2 of Roy's songs)


    Last Aug. 19th, THE GOOD BOOK, Roy's latest release of all original songs, reached #3 on AirPlayDirect's Americana charts!  #1 was Guy Clark & #2 was the late Townes Van Zandt.  Folkdj.org had Roy in the top 3 artists for July.
